An Advanced Mobile Geo-Notification Platform
A feature that uses the global positioning system (GPS) to define geographical boundaries.
Subscribed users receive a notification on their mobile devices once they enter a specific geofence.
The Whippet platform allows for the scheduling of notifications. (E.g. store opening times etc.)
The Whippet platform is designed for smartphones.
Location-aware mobile apps
Leaveraging the current architecture on a mobile device to send users relevant and interesting content based on their exact location is a very powerful way to engage users with a brand, promotion or special event.
Whippet (designed and developed by evolveIT), enables direct communication with mobile users when they enter specific pre-defined geofences. Once a user has enetered this location, Whippet automatically notifies them of this event via a push notification.
In order to use the Whippet framework, the user needs to have an application (with the framework) installed on their mobile device. For those who wish to offer their users a custom developed mobile App with advanced Geofencing - Whippet is the ideal solution.
bespoke app development
In partnership with Whippet, evolveIT offers a full bespoke mobile App development service which allows you the ability to create your Geo-aware mobile solution from the ground up. We only provide the Whippet framework to clients who require a custom application developed by evolveIT/Whippet.
Whippet has been extensively tested and offers a near-perfect margin of accuracy (in some cases up to 5 meters). The geofences are generated via the Whippet control panel which allows you to pin-point the precise location you would like to trigger notifications.
In cases, where GPS signal is bad (or off) on the device, the system will attempt to triangulate the users position using cell phone towers.
Whippet is able to integrate with beacons for indoor locations and to offer even more precise triggers and geofences outdoors.
Owing to a tight integration with the built-in location services on the mobile devices (Android and iOS), Whippet is very low on resource requirements and as a result, th eimpact on the users battery life is minimal.
Utilising the Whippet control panel you are able to configure when to activate geofences and on which days/hours to notify users. This solution is ideal for clients using Whippet to activate deals and promotions at stores and events.
The Whippet control panel is available to all clients utilising the Whippet Framework in their Apps. The control panel allows you to administer the geofences, vendors and triggers which are offered in your app.
A range of reporting modules also help you keep tab on the system in real-time.
